at Painted Hand Pueblo
When visiting the ruins in the Canyons of the Ancients, please remember that this is the ancestral home of many Native American peoples, and represents an amazing chapter in US history. Please show the respect that you would expect from visitors in your home.
Other very important tips for visiting the sites in the Canyons of the Ancients:
* Archelogical sites are fragile. Do not step on walls or mounds.
* Do not stand or sit on walls, move rocks or climb through doorways. All cause damage to these structures.
* Never touch painted and plastered walls or petroglyphs. Skin oils will cause damage.
* Don't bring food in the site. It attracts rodents which will tunnel under the sites, causing structural damage.
* Do not leave trash or "human waste" anywhere. It is ugly and unsanitary.
* Leave artifacts where they are. It is illegal to remove items.
* Don't camp in the ruins. Do not use wood from these sites for fires.
* Stay on existing roads.
* Do not leave "offerings" at the sites. It obscures the historical and archeological "story"
